Juliet's trip down the rabbit hole/Swan station shaft may have a happy-ish ending after all.
Considering the Lost heroine's hands-on bomb detonation and portrayer Elizabeth Mitchell's new lead role in ABC's greenlit V remake, many have speculated that Juliet is a goner. But ABC entertainment president Stephen McPherson says ...
Uh-oh! ABC announced Tuesday that it plans to move Ugly Betty to Fridays in the fall, wedged between wacky neighbors Supernanny and 20/20.
A move to Friday is often a show's last stop before cancellation, but ABC Entertainment president Steve McPherson expressed confidence in Betty during his presentation of the network's fall schedule. "I love the show," he said. "I'd love to see it have a great run on Friday night, the way Ghost Whisperer has." He said he hopes that Betty will hold on to Supernanny's lead-in. What's taking Betty's place? Read on to find out...
Chuck, Friday Night Lights and Medium
NBC's 2009-10 schedule effectively cleaves the TV season in half, meaning that some shows will premiere in the fall and then vanish, while others will not return or premiere until midseason.
That means that recent flourishes of good news for Chuck and Friday Night Lights have been tempered by news likely to disappoint the shows' fans.
How so? Though Chuck was picked up for a third season, the action-comedy's fervent fans will have to wait until midseason (after the Winter Olympics, specifically) to get their fix. NBC boss Ben Silverman said in a Tuesday conference call, however, that Chuck's cast will not be whittled down.
And while NBC recently trumpeted news of Friday Night Lights' two-season renewal, Coach Taylor won't call another play until ...
Elizabeth Mitchell, America Ferrera and Christina Applegate
ABC's plan for the 2009-10 TV includes alien invasions, a new night for Betty and a bevy of sitcoms — though at least one laffer was ironically "forgotten" along the way.
Looking to build a comedy bloc, ABC's Wednesday lineup will feature four new sitcoms: Hank (starring Kelsey Grammer), The Middle (fronted by Patricia Heaton), Modern Family and Cougar Town (starring Courteney Cox Arquette). Notably missing from ABC's schedule is Samantha Who?, which has officially been canceled. The Christina Applegate-starrer, however, still has ...

Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Christian Bale (Terminator Salvation)
Christian Bale's John Connor can make as much noise as he wants at the Cineplex this weekend, but his TV counterpart, Thomas Dekker, has been silenced.
After two seasons, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles "has completed its run — and I think it had a nice little run," Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly told TVGuide.com when asked if boffo box office for Bale's Terminator Salvation (hitting theaters Friday) might make Fox reconsider the series' cancelation.
New hope for Terminator's return emerged over the weekend when Fox ...
So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley, Sarah Connor's Lena Headey, and Wanda Sykes
Fox's official plan for the 2009-10 TV season includes good news for House and Bones fans: The two popular series are staying put on their respective nights.

Dollhouse will remain in the Fridays-at-9 pm slot, where its new lead-in will be
Amber Tamblyn, Jeremy Renner, Adam Goldberg, Kai Lennox
When it comes to ABC's fall plans, to paraphrase Tom Jones, "It's not Unusuals."

"Friends, just heard The Unusuals will not be back ...
